On Saturday the 26th day of January 2019, Seclot Technologies Limited and a lot of other tech startups exhibited at the TECHPOINT BUILD 2019 conference which took place at the Landmark Event Centre,Victoria Island Lagos.
It was a massive exhibition as people trooped in numbers to come check out what several startups are doing with technology to move Africa to the next level.
We had the opportunity of relaunching the SECLOT APP 2.0- a distress notification mobile application which sends signals to the user’s preferred in-case-of-emergency contacts (ICE’s) whenever the app is triggered.
The app was greatly welcomed by people who happened to stop by our exhibition stand where they were welcomed by our ambassadors who took them through on how to make use of it during emergencies. Some of these visitors downloaded the application from their mobile app store and were able to operate it on their own end.
Reviews and feedback were entertained which we are currently working on to ensure the optimal functionality of the app. Some of which include: •
Feedback: People loved the idea of the app and the service it would render them, especially those that live in estates and those that work in private firms. However, some people gave feedback that focused on how we could improve the app to suit users. Some of which are:
- USSD codes that would notify ICE about the kind of distress users are e.g theft, fire, assault etc
- User’s ability to access their Seclot accounts with their email.
- Most users want the app to work when there is poor/no network, which has ways been our plan.
- Google Synchronization. Users want their accounts connected to their devices and google accounts.
Alongside the other exhibitors, interacting and connecting with people from different works of life was indeed enjoyable and a memorable one.
